Lady Cougars Defeat #2 Ranked Atlanta Christian

The women's soccer team played their second conference game on Saturday against #2 ranked Point University. After losing to the Point Skyhawks at home earlier this season, the Lady Cougars knew this would be a tough, physical match. That proved to be the case throughout the first half, as neither team was able to score a goal.

In the 72nd minute, Katie Mills tracked down a long ball, played from the back by Whitney Redemann, beat the Point defender, and slotted the ball across the front of the goal. Rebecca Farrell received the pass from Mills and calmly played the ball into the back of the net for the games only goal. The Lady Cougars were able to hold off the Skyhawks for the final 18 minutes to earn the hard fought victory.

Coach Bates was pleased with the defensive effort from the girls and happy to earn two tough victories against conference opponents on the road. He said, "The team showed great determination and desire this weekend. It's never easy to win back to back road games against conference opponents, but the team played hard and earned both of these victories."

The Lady Cougars next game is at home on Tuesday, October 4 at 4 p.m. against Florida College.
